Couple of weeks ago there was a rumor wandering around the internet that facebook is going to launch a smartphone in collaboration with HTC. The source was Digitimes which mentioned that the phone is going to be launched in 2012. But now, another source Bloomberg West confirmed the rumor by posting on its official Twitter account that the phone on which Facebook and HTC are working will release in the middle of next year.
It further added that the reason why the phone launch is being delayed is because HTC has to cover some other projects with its other products. There were also some rumors that Facebook is developing its own operating system.
